Target CIO talks stores, digital, supply chain and more


Mike McNamara, a former executive at British retailer Tesco PLC, joined Target as CIO last summer, moving from London to Minneapolis.

In a Q&A on Target’s website, McNamara discusses highlights of his first year with the discounter and priorities going forward. He also spoke about Target’s tech hiring boom.


“Since I joined we’ve hired about 700 engineers in the Twin Cities and Bangalore, India,” McNamara said. “And we’ll hire hundreds more and will continue our emphasis on attracting a broad diversity of backgrounds and gender.
